last day of July

How did it happen? How did this month, this summer go by so fast? I could focus on all the unfinished projects, unfulfilled projects, unmet goals, and so on; however, I’m trying to think about all of the things I *have* done. Looking back through my blog, I realize that when summer semester began, I was hiking in the snow. And the kids had mono. Still, I’ve gotten in some fun: mother’s day ski trip to Snowbird, trip to Kayenta for Sean’s birthday, a trip to Portland, a trip to Great Basin, and then next week a trip to Torrey. And I’ve had a great yoga class this summer. Oh and I taught a class đŸ˜‰

After Torrey, I have a retreat to Alta, a UUCO board retreat, two more book discussions for UHC (Carolyn Heilbrun’s The Last Gift of Time: Life Beyond Sixty and Lillian Schlissel’s Women’s Diaries of the Westward Journey), and then I have 4 classes to prep: 2 of which are online and thus more work up front. On the bright side, I don’t have to teach a night class at Davis, so I only have to be on campus MWF mornings. This fall I’ll be a member of the SafeZone advisory board and a community-based learning faculty fellow. What else? I have the Al-Anon Fall Fellowship the first weekend of October, the Mountain Desert District Conference the second weekend, and a family trip to Snow Canyon the third weekend. I have season tickets to the Symphony in Ogden (4 concerts) and we’re getting tickets to volleyball, basketball, football, and performing arts at WSU. Good stuff to look forward to!
